This is a very old film, but it is a classic. Most of it is set in a court room, and in it's day was very darlng
with it speech, but not these days. It's another Blu-ray film that has no extras at all other than the trialer.
It's such a shame, because they miss a lot because of this. Otherwise why release it!!!
The 5* is for the film, but minus 15 for not putting something else on with this film

Lovely old film exploring many mixed human emotions of jealousy, betrayal, love, lust, crimes against the person, etc. James Stewart not quite up to his best but well worth having in your collection.

This courtroom classic is a rare privilege to watch. James Stewart as attorney for the defense and Joseph Welch as judge are extraordinarily
clear, likeable and convincing. In my list of preferences, this old film (1959) comes very close to the top.

I got this especially as Lee Remick was in it.; my favourite actress. She gave an incredible, authentic, yet genuine performance. A must have all for Lee's fans. Superb acting by all, including supporting actor/actresses. It is a long film but far from boring. I was engrossed throughout.

A well crafted murder trial movie from 1959 but it must be one of the best of its type

I was worried that this film may have bored me a little as it is mainly a courtroom drama. I was wrong. It was very exciting, thanks to James Stewart's acting and the clever plot. Very enjoyable.
